Critic Reviews for Date And Switch
A largely enjoyable and credible coming-of-age romp, despite some forced broadness and uneven pacing.
Like a fresh ripple in the near-stagnant high school movie pool, Chris Nelson's "Date and Switch" balances formula with winning performers, genuine humor and a generosity of spirit that this genre too often lacks.
In its sloppy humor and unabashedly earnest expressions of friendship and romance, the movie feels like any likable, and generally forgettable, teen comedy. And yet with its casually handled twist, the genre ambles forward just a little bit.
It's a movie about being true to yourself that's reluctant to let its real character show. At any point that it looks likely to tweak sex-comedy convention or get truly weird, it reverses course at the last minute.
"Date and Switch" should have had something new to say about high school friendships. It doesn't.
Audience Reviews for Date And Switch
A silly and completely forgettable teen comedy that stumbles on cliché after cliché while rarely being funny with all those artificial conflicts and uninspired dialogue (despite a few good moments here and there), but at least it has a heart.
Starts off okay, had high hopes, but average in the end. Not awful, but not memorable either. Kind of a gay American Pie feel to it, but the sequels, not the original cast ones. Okay for the free rental it was, but not a movie I would buy or rewatch. If you like teen movies, and it's free on TV, you might not find it a total waste of an hour and a half.
